    Still, a correlation doesn't predict whether any given conservative or liberal will score that way. Certainly other factors (like environment) play a role in whether an individual ends up being more conservative or liberal.

    As far as the per-state Big Five ratings, here's another set of data that gives the average scores for each state.
    My issue is with the demonization of a political side. Being closed minded is assumed to be a bad thing and is said in a bad light, where as open minded is seen as an absolute good. I actually quite like the statement "don't be so open minded that your brains fall out" because it balances out the over inflated good of being open minded. One should seek balance.

    I actually don't like or agree with conservatives a lot of the time, but I can not stand the slinging and stereotypes others, usually the left, throw at them in a generalized way. It does no good.

    @Hard, the best type I've seen for the US as a whole is ESTJ. It's likely that conservative philosophy would follow an SJ mindset by that measure. Plus the SJ habit of valuing tradition kind of falls within the conservative purview, unless your parties are wholly different to the UK ones. That's not to say that I agree that SJs are close minded. They are more prone to it but, as you know, I don't believe that type = person.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Either that, or they're traditionalists, who prefer the old way. Either way, it @Hard ly makes a difference.

    Well, I agree with "The Critics" for Illinois and Pennsylvania.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    If we're going by MBTI, my home state California is most definitely an ESFP. Texas seems ESFJ. I've only lived in those two states, so they're the only places where I'm familiar with the people enough to stereotype them.

    I think there are problems in categorizing larger states.

    For example, most of Pennsylvania is concentrated in Philly and Pittsburgh, but there's a ton of real estate geographically in-between with very different values and politics, and it's silly to try to categorize a whole state by whatever the average happens to be since it's not really going to accurately describe the state. A smaller or more homogeneous state might be more effectively summarized.
